For the fashion conscious clothes and jewellery have always been crucial to achieving the right look. Nowadays, however, watches are considered to be as much a part of fashion as either. Watch makers and designers have recognised this trend and now produce watches intended to make a fashion statement as well as being functional timepieces.
Most obviously, watches are now designed to suit the different requirements of a variety of wearers and are made in a wide range of shapes and sizes and of different colours and materials. There are watches to suit the elegant woman or for precocious teenagers and there are watches for the businessman or the rugged sporting type. They come in all types for all types of people.
